Each dome is nestled in its own private haven. And the best part? Every dome has something special about its location that sets it apart from the rest. Want a bird’s-eye view? Try our Treehouse dome, perched high above the slope. Craving a stunning sunset? The Farmhouse dome overlooks the valley and farmers’ fields. For a touch of whimsy, the Adventure dome boasts a gorgeous old tree, complete with twinkling lights you can control right from your dome. While our domes are very private, we’d say the Mossy Log is the most secluded. To discover even more hidden surprises, check out our Resort Map and see the unique placement of each dome along the ridge, as well as our trails.
Three of our domes are priced differently than the others, this simply reflects extra amenities in these three domes. For example, The Anchor and Mossy Log both offer a luxurious sauna on their decks. Additionally, our Fun dome boasts an extra double bed and a huge indoor spiral slide. Please refer to our chart showing all amenities in all seven domes for an additional reference.
The Anchor and Mossy Log both offer a luxurious sauna on their decks. At this time, they are the only domes in which you can indulge in this ultimate relaxation experience.
